Underscoring colors continued influence when it comes to trend, the PANTONE Fashion Color Trend Report London Fashion Week Spring 2018 features the top 12 colors for men’s and women’s fashion. Celebrating exploration, experimentation and the consumers desire to mix, blend and create the unexpected, the Spring 2018 palette showcases the unique nuances of color expression for the London market. The report also includes 4 core classics. Transcending seasons and providing a foundation to any wardrobe, these core shades can be built upon in tonal stories or amplified with contrasting hues to create a new level of energy for the Spring 2018 season.

The desire for colorful self-expression is a key take away for Spring 2018. Similar to observations made by Pantone Color Institute’s Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman in our NY PANTONE Fashion Color Trend Report, designers for the UK market are comparably responding to the consumer’s growing appetite for flexibility in color expression by introducing more unusual colors and color stories in their collections for Spring 2018. Overall there is a feeling of optimism and confidence driving a new vitality into fashion trends.

Unique shades for the London runway convey themes of energy, sophistication and serenity. There are multi-dimensional and grounded hues, while others exude a vibrant breath of fresh air. The color story is wildly divergent and we see a kaleidoscopic bounty of uplifting shades and feel-good tones. That doesn’t mean that we don’t continue to look for more neutral or classic shades. Whether on their own or providing the landscape for complex color mixes, core basics are an essential for any season.

Along with this recognized freedom to explore and experiment with more color, fashion, and the people who interact with it, no longer want to feel limited by traditional color guidelines. Gender and seasonal borders continue to be non-issues when it comes to color. Untypical spring shades that make for complex and original combinations, communicates the consumer’s desire to experiment with color all year round without any restrictions. The color story for Spring 2018 is a perfect reflection of this new sentiment.
